Are you ready to discover what God can do through you?
You long to live with purpose, to touch the lives of others with Gods grace. But this just doesnt seem to be the right time-maybe after your life is in order or when your schedule is more manageable or you land the right job or the kids leave home or…
If you want to serve God in a big way, writes author and speaker Donna Partow, the secret lies not in waiting for the perfect opportunity but in choosing to walk through each day fully surrendered to his purposes.
Describing herself as “living proof” that God can use absolutely anybody, Donna reveals the transforming truths and fresh perspectives that will allow Gods power to flow through your life naturally, defeating the attitudes that hold you back. Gods ability to work through your life is limited not by your flaws or your jam-packed schedule, she says, but by your willingness to be used.
Packed with powerful storytelling and insightful Bible teaching, Let Your Life Count will open your eyes and your heart to the countless ways God can use you-just as you are and right where you are-to answer someones prayers.
Includes a study guide designed for individual and group use.
"Women want to live lives that count, says popular author and speaker Partow (Becoming the Woman I Want to Be and This Isn't the Life I Signed Up For). 'All we have to do is let God work through us,' she says. Partow runs with this thought and encourages Christian women to take small, steady steps toward the goal. She tells women to begin praying, not begging God for opportunities but instead listening to what He has to say. She also urges them to ask God to 'show [them] what to do today,' find their 'holy compulsion,' 'do it afraid' (serve in spite of their fears) and 'develop a marathon mentality.' Partow's voice shines through her own and others' stories, as she sprinkles her anecdotes with doses of humor and forthrightness. She goes overboard with constant references to her Web site, but her sincerity overshadows this minor annoyance. Chapters are accompanied by 'Remember,' 'Reflect' and 'Reach' sections, plus a prayer, to help women cement Partow's plan in their minds. She also includes Key Point/Scripture cards to cut out as reminders. Partow's love for God and women is evident throughout, so women looking for hope and a good kick in the pants will find it here."
